Committee Requirements

Committee members serve one-year renewable terms. Potential committee members must apply detailing their interest in serving.  The committee chairs will review committee member applications. Committees will maintain 5 to 7 committee members on each committee.  The committee chair will identify the number of committee members.  

Guests are welcome to attend all open meetings.  Guests can engage in any discussion on the committee; however, do not vote on committee matters.

The president of the WMHCA board appoints committee chairs.  Committee members do not need to be on the board but must hold an active WMHCA membership. The committee chair selects members for a one-year term from July through June. Committee members shall act in accordance with the bylaws and the committee's roles and responsibilities.

All WMHCA committees are working bodies. Committees will comprise members with the interest and capacity to actively engage in the projects and purpose of the committee for serving WMHCA and Mental Health Counselors across Washington State. Committee members can be asked to leave if they are not fulfilling committee duties.
